That's Ned Lagin on the piano NOT Pigpen
Pigpen's playing the B3, but the piano here is all Ned Lagin. This is, in fact, the first Dead show he sat in for in its entirety. (He had played with them previously on "Dark Star" on Nov. 5th and 8th, 1970.) Not only is the piano playing not at all Pigpen's style, but Ned and I talked about this show. It was a lysergic evening...

There maybe only 2 Pigpen tunes but that Good Lovin' is a powerhouse. Aside from that my favourite here is the NFA>GDTRFB>NFA which is just incredible. A gorgeous but fairly short Dark Star as well. Outside of that, many of the performances were nothing special by 71 standards, especially the PITB which didn't really grab me. Overall a good show though and worth a listen.

Pig on Piano
That's Pigpen on the piano
and Pigpen on B-3.
He plays both in this show.
It's a good one all in all. Especially love the first "I Second That Emotion" -- crunchy guitar chords.

Ned Lagin on background piano?
I am not sure, but that could be Ned Lagin on occasional piano in the background..he'd begun a relationship with the band a year before, instigated by a letter he sent them, and appeared on "A.Beauty" as well, and he sat in on 2/18/71. Certain Dead books list him as meeting the band at M.I.T. or was it Worc. Poly. Tech, so it's very concievable he's stting in here on a Boston show..at any rate someone's playing VERY cautious piano in the background(see Playin)

Only two Pigpen tunes?
Only two PigPen Tunes the whole night?! Perhaps he wasn't feeling well?
